Subject: great!
I am not a fan of audiobooks but this is more than that. It is great done play where only visual effects are missing. And this is advantage for listener, opportunity for creativity to form mental images of world and characters and enjoy it more:)

Subject: nowhere else
Nowhere else on the radio spectrum can you get good entertainment,except, NPR. Every other station plays the same old news, the same old commercials,andm the same old songs some of us have been hearing for 30 or 40 years. No matter what station, or format. Which is why I turn to NPR and Internet Archive. Thank you very much! padge.

Just like listening to NPR...because it is!

Sound effects, music, and voice acting...this is like listening to a play. It's a very nice production.
